1Montastraea multipunctata and Moseleya latistellata are herein considered as part of clade XIX+XX.

2Subclade I is expanded to include Montastraea salebrosa.

'√√': clade present with ≥50 bootstrap support; '√': clade present but not supported (<50 bootstrap); 'XX': contradicted clade with ≥50 bootstrap support; and 'X': contradicted clade not supported. Empty cells indicate insufficient data.
